And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day to love the lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul... that thou mayest eat and be full....Deuteronomy 11:13-15
A Downy Woodpecker
Cannot speak
With human word
But with his beak
He doth not starve,
And he can carve
his heart and soul
Upon the limb...
Til' his heart is full
To tell the Lord
He loves him....
Poetry by me, AJP
I lost the Hot in my last attempt for this theme so here is another try.
This little bird touched me in a big way when I studied this image and it looks to me like he carved a heart on the limb. I can see it plain as day and I hope you can too...

    Thank you everyone for your comments. When I went outside to look at the heart on the branch..I saw mere scratchings on the tree from the bird's beak...Taking pictures through windows can cause lens distortion and a little bit of optical illusion...but still an interesting picture:)
